In this workshop aimed at teachers, Sonjé Mayo shares a deeper understanding of what she refers to as the Vertical Pelvis. As a young dance student in the 60s she met Joseph Pilates and he insisted that she focus her training on stabilizing her pelvis. Her lessons with him changed her dance ability completely and she was forever converted to Joe’s way of seeing movement and anatomy. Watch and learn from her how to easily assess different types of spines to achieve optimal pelvic alignment. She then demonstrates specific exercises on different spines to show how to cue and what to watch out for. For lessons, workshop requests and Schroth work, visit Sonjé Mayo at http://Sonjémayo.com/. Filmed at Pilatesology Studio.

    Thank you Sonje, I always love your work and watching you impart your wisdom! Can you tell me the name of the small wedge pillow you were using? Would you find those on a physio accessories store? It looks smaller than the gratz half moon pillow. Thanks!
